Elementary/Sherlock: Dear Watson by maryfgr23 Elementary/Sherlock: Dear Watson by maryfgr23
This is a bit of a follow up of "Indulgence". I must apologize if I spoiled people who didn't know that BBCsherlock dies and returns, but to be fair, this comic presupposes all readers are up-to-date fans, otherwise most of the references, jokes and the overall point of this crossover comic would be lost on you anyway.
I'd like to think of this one as my personal comparison and contrast as I have observed the relationships between the Sherlocks and their Watsons. If it seems I am consistently taking the piss (excuse my British) out of the BBCsherlock duo, know that John is expressing my personal hopes of what should happen when he is reunited with Sherlock in the third season. Though I'd also be happy with a simultaneous hugpunchfaint. :D

Actually, John headbutt/tackles him.
Then punches him in the face.
Then punches him and gives him a bloody nose.

And it was GLORIOUS.

ELEMENTARY always reminds me the REAL Holmes-Watson relationship, as is shown in the Canon.
For example, Holmes' "My dear Watson" In the 5th lattice(?) reminds me CHAS.

Awww. You draw all of them SO cute, but especially the Watsons. :aww: I just finished season 2 of Sherlock, and am about to start season 3, so the spoiler level was perfect. :la:

What's funny now is he did punch him right in those damned cheek bones when they reunited

Haha, I don't know Elementary yet, but sooner or later probably give that a try too. And I wonder how would they do about the faking death stuff (since it's almost obligatory, after all it's canon XD). But I felt the same, I hoped John would punch him. And he did it! XD
And I think you did well on the two, haha, both being cranky and all. :D

I can't wait for you to check out Elementary. Hope my comics haven't spoiled you. :)

It will have to wait a bit until I get my hands on the series (also lack of time) but if anything, your comics just made me more interested in it. For the first time I wasn't really fond of the idea of a "female Watson" but I do really like Lucy Liu and as time passed I got used to it. That Sherlock seems very different as well from the original and I don't see any "Sherlock-y" in him from the bits I saw so far but this doesn't mean it can't be a good show and an interesting interpretation still. ^^
The only thing I don't like is that lots of Elementary fans seems to have aversion towards other versions (especially BBC one) and rather hostile. I don't understand why...
So it's pretty cool to see many versions meshed up, I start to think that it is my fav thing ever - seeing different versions to interact! XD

He did punch him...straight in the nose.
